Destiny 2: All Festival of the Lost Rewards and Challenges (2023)

There are some solid rewards in this years Festival of the Lost in Destiny 2. Here's what you can get.

The Festival of the Lost is no different, and while a few of the rewards aren’t much to sneeze at, others are well worth your investment. The gameplay loop is pretty fun too, if a bit more repetitive than seasonal D2 content. In this guide, we’ll list all the Festival of the Lost rewards, as well as the challenges you need to complete to get them all.

Event Ticket Rewards

You will have noticed that Event Tickets are also part of the reward structure. These are only for those who paid 1,000 Silver (the equivalent of $10) for the upgraded Event Card. You get the following items with the pass and Tickets.

  • Instant Redeem: Vampiric Pose Emote, Sugary Staple Sparrow, Roseate Gleam Shader
  • 8 Event Tickets: Confection Shell
  • 5 Event Tickets: Imprecise Snack Emote
  • 2 Event Tickets: Sugar Rush Transmat Effect

You are, of course, under no obligation to spend real money on the upgraded Event Card, and personally, I don’t think the rewards are worth the cost. The real reward is the Lost Momento item that gives the first (almost) all-black Shader for the gun you equip it to. The guns are nice, too. I guess.

That’s it for all the Festival of the Lost rewards for 2023. For more content on Festival of the Lost and Destiny 2 in general, check out our guides on how to get more Candy, Spectral Pages, and more in our D2 guides hub.
